Spring Conferences – Oct 24 & 25

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Fall conferences will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 24 and Thursday, Oct 25. These are student led conferences that include the student, parent/guardian(s), and the advisor. The focus for your fall conference will be to check your progress thus far, set goals for the rest of the year, review credit count sheets and progress towards graduation, and address any concerns that students and/or parents might have. 

Our goal is to have 100% attendance so all Steller students have the opportunity to show off their strengths and talk about areas they need to improve.

  1. Go to https://apps.asdk12.org/ConferenceScheduling2018/StudentScheduleStartExt.aspx
  2. Choose Steller as the school
  3. Choose 7th grade! (In order to work the system, all conferences are scheduled as 7th graders.)
  4. For Team Name, choose your student’s ADVISOR
  5. Choose the date you wish to come in
  6. Choose your time and continue through the process.
  7. You can sign up to receive a reminder email. 
If you need to cancel your appointment time, you will have to email your adviser. Thank you and see you soon!

DEA National Drug Take Back Campaign – Oct 27

Hello Steller Community,

It is time for DEA’s National Drug Take Back – 
Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Most abused prescription drugs come from family and friends. You could be a drug dealer and not even now it.

  • Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription of a doctor’s supervision.
  • The non-medical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America.
  • The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends – and the home medicine cabinet.
  • Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply.
  • Take-back programs are the best way to dispose of old drugs. But if a program is not available:
    • Take the meds out of their bottles;
    • Mix them with something unappealing like used kitty litter or coffee grounds;
    • Seal them in a bag or disposable container, and throw that away.

Be safe and not sorry, have a great week.
